When does LiAngelo Ball play in the NBA Summer League? Hornets Forward stats, highlights and schedule

For a second straight year, LiAngelo Ball will be a member of the Hornets’ Summer League.

Hornets All-Star Guard LaMelo Ball’s older brother, LiAngelo Ball, has close ties to the franchise. Last year, he joined the Hornets for the 2021 Las Vegas Summer League and spent the 2021-22 season with the Greensboro Swarm, the Hornets’ G League affiliate.

In 28 G League games, Ball averaged 4.6 points in 13.2 minutes per competition and had a season-high 12 points in a loss to Lakeland Magic.

While his G-League numbers might not catch your eye, Ball averaged 9.6 points in five Summer League games in 2021.

The 6-foot-5 forward has a very different game to brothers Lonzo and LaMelo – he’s looking to carve out a lane as a 3-and-D forward at the professional level. Ball may not be a big deal for the Hornets this summer, but he’s sure to be a big box office attraction again.

He has been shown to make the best of the time he is given.

Here’s when Ball could hit the court and how to watch the Hornets this summer.

When does LiAngelo Ball play in the NBA Summer League?

The Hornets are only participating in the Las Vegas Summer League, which begins Thursday, July 7th and runs through Sunday, July 17th.

Charlotte starts July 8 against the Indiana Pacers. At this time, Ball’s availability is uncertain as he was placed under the league’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols on July 4.

If Ball spends five days in health and safety protocols, he would be eligible to return for Charlotte’s second game on July 10.
